SubjectLinux 2.6.0-test3

The bulk of the diff by far is various architecture updates, and in
particular bringing MIPS[64] a bit closer to being up-to-date for 2.6.x
But there's arm, alpha, h8300 and ia64 updates too.

Merging the SELinux security architecture also ends up growing the patch,
even though it may not be all that noticeable for most normal users.

For most x86 users, the CPU frequency updates, network driver updates, and
some USB updates are most likely to matter.

And this should fix the PCMCIA lock-up that a number of people have seen
happening since 2.5.71 or so. Thanks for people involved in testing and
fixing that one.

Also, Andrew fixed a read-ahead bug that was introduced in test2 that
could cause (non-readahead) IO failures under load.

Shortlog follows, full details in the BK trees and in the log on the
ftp/web sites.

Dave Jones:
o [CPUFREQ] update Documentation
o [CPUFREQ] Fix compilation of speedstep-ich.c if SPEEDSTEP_DEBUG is
o [CPUFREQ] Longrun validate can fail
o [CPUFREQ] Locking fixes [1/11] First part in a series of patches
from Dominik which clean up the locking in cpufreq. It sort of
worked, but is full of races. But to keep it working at least as
well it works now, add a new spinlock cpufreq_driver_lock which
will be what cpufreq_driver_sem intended to be -- but it can indeed
be a spinlock instead of a semaphore.
o [CPUFREQ] Locking fixes [2/11] As the per-CPU initialization can
fail, we need to deal with this situation in cpufreq_remove_dev as
the sysdev core doesn't (yet) do this for us. The solution: add a
"struct cpufreq_policy
o [CPUFREQ] Fix locking [3/11] Change the return value of
cpufreq_cpu_get from a nondescriptent int to struct
cpufreq_policy*. This will allow for cleaner code - and later it
will be expected that anyone who grabs a reference by calling
cpufreq_cpu_get must return this struct cpufreq_policy* to
o [CPUFREQ] Fix locking [4/11] Make cpufreq_remove_dev a bit more
readable. Also, assure that the GOV_STOP and the
cpufreq_driver->exit() call are indeed the last calls done.
o [CPUFREQ] Fix locking [5/11] Make cpufreq_set_policy a bit more
readable by storing the CPU's cpufreq_policy into a pointer.
o [CPUFREQ] Fix locking [6/11] Change the function parameter of
cpufreq_cpu_put to struct cpufreq_policy *.
o [CPUFREQ] Fix locking [7/11] Finally implement the two different
cpufreq_driver_target callbacks -- the one called while the per-CPU
lock is held, the other while not. While we're at it, clean up
o [CPUFREQ] Fix locking [8/11] Split up cpufreq_governor into a
locking and non-locking variant.
o [CPUFREQ] Fix locking [9/11] Use the per-CPU policy->lock to lock
the per-CPU "policy" data. Also, use it to serialize the setting of
new frequency policies on each CPU.
o [CPUFREQ] Fix locking [10/11] Remove the final instances of the
now-deprecated cpufreq_driver_sem. Also, the previous
"one-frequency change at one moment" limitation is gone. If it's
needed by the cpufreq driver, it should be implemented in its
cpufreq_driver->{target,setpolicy} callback.
o [CPUFREQ] Fix locking [11/11] Implement per-CPU memory allocation.
Is a bit cleaner than the previous "once and for all" approach.
o [CPUFREQ] speedstep_ICH new frequency notification fix
o [CPUFREQ] Sanity checks for voltage scaling in longhaul driver
o [AGPGART] Handle Intel chipsets whose BIOS has 'forgotten' to
assign resources
o [AGPGART] Fix Nforce modular compilation
o [CPUFREQ] Update MAINTAINERS/CREDITS Dominik doesn't want
maintainership any more (besides him still doing lots of great work
on it. 8-)
o [CPUFREQ] Sparse __user annotations for acpi driver
o [CPUFREQ] Fix sparse warnings in powernow-k7
o [CPUFREQ] sparse __user annotation for cpufreq userspace interface
o [CPUFREQ] longhaul printk cleanups
o [CPUFREQ] Better handling of revisionKey bits on Longhaul
o [CPUFREQ] Move MSRs from powernow-k7.h to include/asm-i386/msr.h
o [CPUFREQ] Remove CVS idents
o [CPUFREQ] Move rdmsrl/wrmsrl to include/asm-i386/msr.h
o [CPUFREQ] Clean up longhaul MSR usage using bitfields
o [CPUFREQ] Convert Longhaul v1 over to bitfields too
o Cset exclude:|ChangeSet|20030715115826|58980
o [CPUFREQ] Fix detection of Transmeta CPUs. Makes longrun work again
o [CPUFREQ] Fix compiler warnings in msr macros
o [CPUFREQ] Use standard types in wrmsrl
o [CPUFREQ] Update documentation
o [CPUFREQ] Remove deprecated email address
o Athlon Machine Check fix

Stephen Lord:
o Do not include linux/version.h, avoid massive recompilations
o Correct the maxbytes sb value for non-pagesize filesystem block
sizes, and all uses of max file size constant within XFS
o [XFS] remove extra locking which was folded into the xfs extended
attribute calls - we do not need this.
o Encapsulate the setting and clearing of PF_FSTRANS around xfs
transactions. This is used to protect against nested transactions
which can cause deadlocks. Also ensures we keep the state set for
the duration of a chain of rolling transactions.
o Add an IO completion handler to the direct_IO path to allow the
initiator to take an action at completion time. XFS uses this to
o Rework XFS read/write path so that there is one common read and one
common write path for all the different I/O variants. This means we
can now support true async I/O.
o Change XFS to support sector aligned O_DIRECT rather than
filesystem block alignment.
o [XFS] Scale default number of log buffers based on memory size
o Make the permission operation in xfs conditional on ACLs being
compiled in
o Only add bytes read into the stats if we did not get an error
o Use i_size_read and i_size_write instead of direct access to the
i_size field.
o Fix a couple of pagebuf end cases, in particular, deal with block
device which is not correctly initialized and do not submit a bio
to it - that trips a BUG.
o Move from fsid_t to __kernel_fsid_t, fixes ia64 build
o Do not include linux/version.h - no need for it
